      Mechanic: Alright sir what seems to be the problem?

      Customer: I don't know, I tried to use my car on friday and it didn't work, now it's monday and I need to get to work and I can't and this needs to be fixed right now.

      Mechanic: Can you start the car? Can you even get into your car? Does it make any sounds when you try to start it? Are all 4 tires there?

      Customer: I don't know, I don't know what any of that stuff means, I tried to get to work and it wouldn't let me and you need to fix it now because you changed my oil 6 months ago.

      Mechanic: Alright well what kind of car are you driving?

      Customer: I don't know, a green one, why does that matter?

      Mechanic: Please take a look at the back of your car and see if there are any letters or numbers that would indicate a vehicle model or manufacturer

      Customer: Ok, my car is a SV2 87K.

      Mechanic: No sir that's your license plate. My records indicate that you drive a Nissan Altima, can you confirm that the key you're using to try and get into this car says Nissan on it?

      Customer: My key says Lexus but I don't see how that makes a difference, I've been using this key on this car for years and it's always worked, what did you do to my car?
      Sad thing is, I see this kind of nonsense all the time. And everyone wonders why I have such a bad attitude towards work and cars.

      if you haven't done so already...pm me an address if you want me to send stickers to you!!! I'm mailing them tomorrow!

      EDIT: If you attend Chili's GTGs do NOT send me a PM to have it mailed. I can make arrangements to meet you there and give them to you.

      Or I just wait another week. Got an entire cooling system to rebuild on a large welder next wed, Im sure to be beat. (these welders have 3 500 horse electric motors to run the hydraulic pacs, and 126 heads that have individual cooling lines to them, nightmare)
